What is Interlocking work? What are the Types of Interlocking?

Interlocking is usually mechanical or relay based. In such interlocking systems, the various routes and switches outside a station are physically connected together so that setting one route through the station automatically disables all other routes.
For example, in a station with 2 loop lines and a main line, if a train is going to pass through the main line without stopping, the main line signal will be set to green and the switches will be set so that the train stays on the main line. In a mechanical interlocking, the points and signals will be connected in such a way that turning the signal green automatically prevents the points from being changed until the signal is
changed to Red. This prevents accidental changing of points while the train is passing through. Relay based systems also do a similar thing where the electronic switches operating the points are connected in such a way that switching on a few switches automatically disconnects other switches.
In these systems, if the routes in the interlocking have to be changed, say, after construction of a new loop line, then all the mechanical/electrical connections have to be relaid again. In a Solid state interlocking, all the switches controlling the points and signals are controlled via software running on microprocessors ( Hence the name 'solid state', which is the general term used for semiconductor devices like microprocessors). In these systems, changing the routes can be done purely through software changes and does not require any physical modifications in the Yard.

In railway signalling, an interlocking is an arrangement of signal apparatus that prevents conflicting movements through an arrangement of tracks such as junctions or crossings. The signalling appliances and tracks are sometimes collectively referred to as an interlocking plant.

A minimal interlocking consists of signals, but usually includes additional appliances like switches / Points, derails, crossings at grade and movable bridges. Some of the fundamental principles of interlocking include:

1. Signals may not be operated to permit conflicting train movements to take place at the same time.

2. Switches and other appliances in the route must be properly 'set' (in position) before a signal may allow train movements to enter that route.

3. Once a route is set and a train is given a signal to proceed over that route, all switches and other movable appliances in the route are locked in position until either
a. The train passes out of the portion of the route affected, or
b. The signal to proceed is withdrawn and sufficient time has passed to ensure that a train approaching that train has had opportunity to come to a stop before passing the signal.

The Benefit:
Interlockings allow trains to cross from one track to another using a turnout and a series of switches. An interlocking is designed so that it is impossible to give clear signals to trains unless the route to be used is proved to be safe

Types of Interlocking:

Mechanically operated interlocking:
In mechanical interlocking plants, a locking bed is constructed, consisting of steel bars forming a grid. The levers that operate switches, derails, signals or other appliances are connected to the bars running in one direction. The bars are constructed so that, if the function controlled by a given lever conflicts with that controlled by
another lever, mechanical interference is set up in the cross locking between the two bars, in turn preventing the conflicting lever movement from being made.

Manually operated interlocking:
This is a form of mechanical interlocking as well, but relies on the signalman to move about from one set of points and signals to another carrying with him the keys used to operate them.

Electrically operated interlocking:
In the more advanced electrical or electronic interlocking schemes, the points and signals are worked from one integrated mechanism in a signal cabin which features a display of the entire track layout with indications of sections that are occupied, free, set for reception or dispatch, etc. The interlocking is accomplished not by mechanical devices but by electrical circuitry -- relays and switches in older electrical or electropneumatic systems, and computerized circuits in the newer electronic systems.

Panel Interlocking:
It is a system used in most medium-sized stations on IR. In this, the points and signals are worked by individual switches that control them.

Route Relay Interlocking:
It is the system used in large and busy stations that have to handle high volumes of train movements. In this, an entire route through the station can be selected and all the associated points and signals along the route can be set at once by a switch for receiving, holding, blocking, or dispatching trains.

A lot of discussion has taken place in the past in IRI about change of the passenger's name in case of a reserved ticket. There have been several queries and suggestions as to how this is to be done. The guidelines are available in the FAQ section. But has anyone in IRI reported having successfully undergone this experience of a change of name. Not as far as I am aware.
Well here is documentary evidence of my own endeavour to change reservation in my son's name to that of my daughter. After a great ordeal I emerged triumphant in the end. To begin with the application by my son seeking transfer of the reservation to his sister.

जानिए कैसे ट्रेन टिकट हो सकता है ट्रांसफर, कौन-कौन उठा सकता है फायदा:
रेलवे आरक्षण टिकट पर छपा होता है कि यह टिकट नॉन ट्रांसफरेबल है। लेकिन रेलवे ने ब्लड रिलेशन में कन्फर्म टिकट दूसरे के नाम ट्रांसफर करने की सुविधा दे रखी है। कोई भी यात्री अपना कन्फर्म टिकट अपने बेटे, भाई या पिता के नाम ट्रांसफर करा सकता है। नाम परिवर्तन कराने के लिए आरक्षण सुपरवाइजर के नाम अर्जी देकर ब्लड रिलेशन का प्रमाण पेश करना होगा। इस नियम में एक शर्त यह है कि रियायती दर पर लिया गया
टिकट ट्रांसफर नहीं होगा। मसलन पिता का टिकट सीनियर सिटीजन कन्सेशन रेट का है तो वह उसके बेटे के नाम ट्रांसफर नहीं किया जाएगा। बहन, बेटी या पत्नी के नाम टिकट ट्रांसफर करने की सुविधा दी गई है।
*ये होंगे प्रमाण पत्र:
एक राशन कार्ड में टिकट धारी व उसका टिकट ट्रांसफर कराने वाले भाई, बहन, पत्नी, माता-पिता के नाम दर्ज होंगे तो मान्य किया जाएगा। दोनों व्यक्तियों के पेन कार्ड, मतदाता पहचान पत्र जैसा कोई दस्तावेज जिनसे ब्लड रिलेशन साबित हो, प्रस्तुत करने होंगे। साथ ही एक एप्लीकेशन भी देनी होती है जिसमें ना जाने का कारण लिखना होता है। साथ ही यह भी लिखना होगा कि उनके स्थान पर कौन जा रहा है।
किसको ट्रांसफर हो सकता है टिकट
शैक्षणिक भ्रमण, शोध या टूर्नामेंट में भाग लेने जाने वाले छात्रों के नाम भी रेल आरक्षण सूची में बदले जा सकते हैं बशर्ते स्कूल या कॉलेज के प्रधान को छात्र छात्राओं के नाम बदलने का विभागीय पत्र रेलवे रिजर्वेशन सुपरवाइजर के नाम यात्रा से 48 घंटे पूर्व जारी करना होगा।
*समूह कर्मचारी:
सरकारी महकमा या रजिस्टर्ड कंपनी के विभागीय काम, कांफ्रेंस या सेमिनार में भाग लेने जाने वाले कर्मचारियों के ग्रुप रिजर्वेशन में से अगर कुछ कर्मचारियों का यात्रा कार्यक्रम निरस्त हो जाए और उनके बदले दूसरे कर्मचारियों को भेजा जाए तो आरक्षण टिकट पर यात्रियों के नाम परिवर्तित हो सकते हैं। उस महकमे के हेड को आरक्षण सुपरवाइजर के नाम पत्र जारी कर उल्लेख करना होगा कि किन कर्मचारियों के स्थान पर कौन से दूसरे कर्मचारी यात्रा करेंगे।
शादी-ब्याह के आयोजक बाहर जाने वाली बारात में जाने वाले रिश्तेदारों, मित्रों व परिचितों के आरक्षण कई दिनों पूर्व करा लेते हैं। विवाह का दिन पास आने तक कुछ रिश्तेदार जरूरी काम आ जाने से बारात में नहीं जा पाते हैं। अपने स्थान पर घर के दूसरे सदस्य को भिजवा देते हैं। शादी समारोह के आयोजक को ट्रेन रवानगी से 48 घंटे पूर्व अर्जी देकर परिवर्तित बारातियों के नाम टिकट बदलवाने होंगे।

Mixed services usually have both freight wagons and passenger coaches in the same rake. Such services were usually run on routes with very less traffic. They used to be very common in the Steam days. These days, they are only visible in a handful of sections, mostly the remaining metre and narrow gauge sections.
